I’m new to Octopress platform for Blogging, but I think it is excellent and straightforward.
Creating my first post, I felt so excited, similar to when you discover a new treasure or secret path in my favourite game. But everything at the beginning is going to be challenging.
My first problem was that my post wasn’t displaying the comments. I use Disqus, a widespread commenting system.
After hours of searching the web and reading a lot of posts about the topic, I had a good understanding of how to integrate them.
So I thought of sharing my experience:
First, you must register your site in Disqus, and you will receive a short code. After that, go to your
_config.yml file inside your project and add it.
disqus_short_name: ***************** disqus_show_comment_count: false
After that, make sure that you allow comments in your post. Inside
source/_posts/, there will be all your posts, and on the top are some configurations:
--- layout: post title: "File rename" date: 2014-04-13 18:48:47 +0200 tags: ruby ---
But it didn’t work; I went on a quest to solve this.
Octopress uses the
liquid syntax for loading the different layouts; reading the post layout inside
source/_layouts/_posts, you will see that it loads a file called
I looked for it and found it, and saw this:
Felt a little weird; that’s not what you expected; searching on the Internet, some people talked about another file,
disqus.html, inside the
and once there, the code felt more appropriate.
Copying that inside
disqus_thread.html solved the problem.
